This Is Rad!

This week we have one half of This Is Rad! and Doctor DC as international life partners Kyle Clark and Richard Eden explore the delightful world of YTV and Much Music in the 90's and early 00's. What lives in the valley beyond Degrassi? Why are pineapples and skeletons synonymous with Canadian youth? Plus, what does an MTV style reality show look like in the great white north?
